TERMS AND VACATIONS. 
The Commencement is held on the last Thursday in June. 
For particular dates, see the Calendar, page 18. 

ATTENDANCE. 

Students not in their places at the opening of the Term must 
show by written statement from their parents or guardians that 
the absence was necessary. 

No student may be absent during the Term without leave. 

Parents and guardians are requested not to give their consent 
to any absence. 

PUBLIC WORSHIP. 

Students are required to attend Morning and Evening Prayers 
in the College Chapel, also the public Services on Sundays, and 
on the principal Holy-days of the Church. 



MATRICULATION. 

A student is admitted to matriculation when he has sustained 
a satisfactory probation. Matriculation gives accredited mem- 
bership in the Institution, and entitles the student to an honora- 
ble dismission. For misconduct, he may be reduced to the con- 
dition of a Probationer. 

DEGREES. 

The Degree of Bachelor of Arts is conferred upon all students 
in good standing who are approved at the final examinations of 
the Senior Class. 



CATALOGUE. 25 



Candidates for the Degree of Master of Arts in course, must 
show that they have, since taking the Bachelor's Degree, been 
engaged for three years in the study or practice of one of the 
learned professions, or in other scientific or literary pursuits ; 
and each candidate must deliver to the Faculty an Essay upon 
some literary or scientific theme. 

Application for the Master's Degree must be made to the 
President at least one week before Commencement. 

The fee for either Degree is Jive dollars, payable in advance. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

The two Literary Societies, the Philomathesian and Nu Pi 
Kappa, have always been fostered by the College. The Society 
Halls are very commodious, and have been fitted up at great 
expense, occupying the whole of the second and third stories of 
the central portion of Ascension Hall. All the students are 
active members. The meetings are held every week, for practice 
in declamation, essay, oratory and discussion. These exercises, 
with the mutual criticism which forms a part of the regular 
work, and the generous rivalry maintained between the Socie- 
ties, contribute very much to the education of the students as 
writers and speakers. 

LIBRARIES. 

The students have access to the Libraries of: The Theological 
Seminary, Kenyon College, the Philomathesian Society, and 
the Nu Pi Kappa Society. The aggregate number of volumes 
in these four Libraries is about 21,000. 

ASSISTANCE. 

Students having the Ministry in view are assisted on making 
the requisite application to the various Education Societies of 
the Church : The Education Committee of the Diocese of Ohio, 
the Evangelical Education Society, and the Society for the In- 
crease of the Ministry. Tuition fees are remitted to the sons of 
Clergymen canonically resident in the Diocese of Ohio. Merito- 
rious students of the College or Grammar School, whose circum- 
stances require it, may, at the discretion of the Faculty, engage 
in teaching, for which opportunity often occurs without the ne- 
cessity of leaving Gambier. 

The College fees of indigent and meritorious students may be 
remitted in part, or in whole, upon application.

EXPENSES. 
Each room is sufficiently largo and convenient to accommo- 
date two students. The rooms are provided with stoves, and 
are neatly painted and papered by the College. Students provide 
their own beds, furniture, lights, books and stationery. Furni- 
ture can often be bought second hand. 

The College bill must be paid in advance, at the beginning of 
earch term. The charges are: for Tuition, $10 per term — for 
Room Rent $5 per term — and for Incidentals $10 per annum. A 
Matriculation fee of $5 is charged to every student at his entrance. 
There are also some minor expenses, consisting of taxes volun- 
tarily imposed by the students in their Classes and Literary So- 
cieties, and the expenses at graduation. 

Every student on entering the College, or preparatory school, 
must deposit $5 with the Treasurer, as security for damage. The 
charges on this fund have averaged less than one dollar per year 
to each student. The balance is returned to the student on 
leaving. 

When a student is absent for a Term, and is afterwards, upon 
examination, allowed to go on with his class, tuition is charged 
for the time of his absence. Room rent is charged when a room 
is reserved for a student. 

Fuel is supplied by the Agent of the College, and must be 
paid for in advance, at the same time with the bill for tuition. 
The charge is $8 per term for the first and second term, and $4 
for the third term ; and twice these sums when a room is occu- 
pied by a single student. 

Board can be obtained either in clubs or in private houses. 
The price of board is at present, in clubs, less than $3 ; in pri- 
vate houses, $3.50 to $4 per week. Students are not allowed to 
board themselves in their rooms. 

Regular College bill, for Tuition, Rent, and Incidentals, $55 ; 
Fuel, $20 to $40 ; Board, $90 to $152 ; Washing, $20 to $25 ; 
Lights, $3 to $0 ; Books and Stationery, $10 to $20 ; Total regular 
expenses for one year, $199 to $298. 

Parents are advised not to allow their sons a greater amount 
of money than is sufficient to pay the ordinary and reasonable 
expenses.

The School is under the general supervision of the Board of Trustees 
of Kenyon College. The Principal was appointed by the President and 
Faculty of the College, and thus there is afforded the Public a guarantee 
of his fitness to direct the details of the School. In these details the 
Principal has entire control. 

COURSE OF INSTRUCTION. 

The design of the College in establishing the Grammar School, is to 
provide an Institution where, under Christian and home influences, boys 
may be thoroughly prepared for entering the regular College classes. To 
carry ovit this plan, the Principal will use every endeavor, and he will 



28 



GAM BIER 



associate with himself in the management of the School, teachers of pe- 
culiar fitness for their several departments. Only Graduates from the 
leading Universities and Colleges will be employed. 

The Course of Instruction is adapted to the demands of a thorough 
( 'lassieal and Scientific training. A pupil can either prepare himself for 
College, or he can acquire such a training as one may need who has but 
a short time to devote to school, and can not enter College. 

The School is classified under Six Forms. The requirements for en- 
tering the lowest Form are the ability to read and write ; a knowledge of 
the Four Fundamental Rules in Arithmetic; and some acquaintance 
with English Grammar and Geography. N. B.— Every pupil is required 
to study English Composition; Menial Arithmetic; Heading; Penman- 
ship; Orthography ; History. Beyond these studies, parents can select 
for their sons such others as they desire. In no case will a pupil be al- 
lowed to choose his own studies, without the advice of the Principal. 
After a course of studies is chosen, it must be followed during the entire 
session, unless there be very urgent reasons for a change. No new study 
can be begun after the first two weeks of each half-session. 

1. The English Branches. 

Grammar is taught by Text Books and by practice in Composition. 
Errors in speech are corrected, and in every practical manner, correctness 
in the use of our language is taught. Orthography is taught by Dictation 
Exercises, and by Text Books. Penmanship is practiced daily, until pro- 
ficiency is attained. Reading is a part of the daily work of the younger 
pupils. The older ones are exercised in Elocution at longer intervals. 
History,— Sacred, Ancient and Modern, forms a part of the course of each 
pupil. Geography — -Ancient and Modern, is taught to all not proficient 
therein. 

2. The Latin and Greek Languages. 

In this department the pupil is first drilled thoroughly in Eo7*ms, study- 
ing them after the most approved system. The Syntax is then learnt, and 
translation is begun as soon as possible. Throughout the whole course 
particular attention is paid to rendering English into Latin and Greek. 
Accuracy in translation, coupled with elegance in the use of our own 
language, is carefully taught. 

3. The Mathematics. 

This department embraces a thorough training in the more elementary 
branches, with the opportunity afforded to any one desiring it, of pursu- 
ing a thorough course in the Higher Mathematics. The endeavor through- 
out the course is to teach each pupil to analyze for himsalf every principle 
with which he meets. Mere memorizing of rules is discarded, and the 
study of principles is substituted. Pupils are required to think for them-

demonstrated satisfactorily by the pupil. In work at the black-board, 
accuracy in the use of language is required. Weekly drills in original 
exercises form a leading feature in the course. 

4. Modern Languages. 

French and German are taught to all desiring to study them. Correct 
pronunciation, and ease in translation from the original and the reverse, 
form the object of this course. 

5. The Sciences. 

The elements of the Natural Sciences are taught in so far as they are 
necessary to develop the faculty of observation, and to teach the funda- 
mental principles of the simple natural phenomena. An extended course 
in these branches must naturally be reserved for the College, where there 
can be the free use of Instruments. 

6. Commercial Department. 

To those not desiring a full Classical and Scientific Course, opportune 
will be given for the study of Business Forms, and such other studies as 
they may need to fit them for an early entrance into a business life. 



DISCIPLINE. 

The system of discipline and the general management of the School is 
based on the principle, that the authority of the parent is supreme to the 
child, and that the teacher in charge of a school stands in the place of the 
parent. Implicit obedience is required from every pupil. The con- 
science of the pupil, and his own instincts as to right and wrong, are ap- 
pealed to, so as to make him manly and self-reliant. The only laws are 
those needed in every large family to ensure regular^, comfort, and 
perfect harmony of action. The School is the home of each pupil, and he 
enjoys here every privilege that he enjoys at his own home. Wholesome 
restraints are uesd without hampering the liberties of the pupils. No 
pupil who shows himself to be incorrigible, or whose presence in the 
school would be hurtful to the rest of the pupils will be suffered to remain. 



EXAMINATIONS AND REPORTS. 

Examinations, are held at the close of each half session. These de- 
termine the progress of each pupil in his several classes. 

Monthly reports are sent to the parents of each pupil, indicating h's 
standing in class and general deportment. These will be an evidence to 
the parents of the progress made by their sons. It is hoped that these 
will be examined and notice taken of them by those to whom they are 
sent. 



< l H) GAMBIEIl 



PRIZES. 

Suitable prizes will be given to pupils standing first in class, and 
at the same time, attaining a certain standard. These prizes consist of 
valuable books and two medals. 



LITERARY ADVANTAGES. 

The Libraries of the College contain 21,000 volumes of every variety of 
literature. To these, by the payment of a small fee, the pupils have 
access. The Literary Societies of the College are open to the pupils as 
visitors. It is hoped that during this session there will be organized a So- 
ciety at the Hall for Literary purposes. 



RELIGIOUS INFLUENCES. 

The School is the Diocesan School of the Protestant Episcopal Church 
of the Dioceses of Ohio and Southern Ohio. As a church school it se- 
cures to its pupils an education based on Christian principles. This is 
the only purpose had in view in making the school Diocesan. 

The pupils attend daily Morning Prayers at the Chapel of the College, 
and Divine Service Sunday Morning and Evening at the same place. 

The younger pupils attend the Sunday School, and the older ones at- 
tend the Bible Class taught by a member of the Faculty of the Theologi- 
cal Seminary. : The Principal is present at the Sunday School with the 
scholars. No pupil is exempt from this duty.

grounds are ample, and the Principal provides means of engaging in 
sports of a healthy nature.

is open to the Pupils of Milnor Hall. The Kokosing river is near the 
Hall, and gives opportunity for bathing and skating. 



BUILDINGS.

ed with carpets, single beds, and all needful furniture.
